Getting you File Ready for the Laser

In order for us to complete your quote and job, vector files are what we require for our machine to do your design.
Our machine is 900mm x 600mm so the maximum usable area is 895mm x 595mm. However, our machine does have pass-through so we can fit larger materials in the machine, but the design will only be 900 x 600mm.

What you need to know when drawing your design

There are only 3 different colour you need to do your design in when submitting it to us. This is because there are 3 main things that laser cutter does.
Red = Cut, Black = Raster Etching and Blue = Vector Etching. 

Getting Started

Vector Files

Once you have created drawn (not imported or pasted in there) your design in the vector software, they need to be saved in vector format.

Vector File Formats AI, EPS, SVG, DXF, DWG or PDF (sometimes)
